  1. I just got my licence on Monday at HART Somerton and a fellow tester mentioned this site, so here I am. :)

    I'm keen to be an active member of this forum.

    Also, I'd like to thank the queen for giving me a day off to get my licence. :D

  12. Hi Brad, and welcome :)

    When I first joined only a couple of months ago, I was advised to go to the Tuesday L Plater ride. I've been twice and it's been quite enjoyable meeting new people and going for a cruise.

    See you round!

  13. As a brand new rider, probably better to come to the Sat learners's session b4 going on the Tuesday night ride. I went on one of those too early and not only had a (mild) off, but also scared the crap out of myself. At least the Sat session is in a carpark, and there's plenty of people to give you advice and help you with the finer points of getting used to manouvering etc. On the Tues ride, you're on your own a lot (albeit in a group ride), and also out on the main roads in the dark.

    Anyway, you decide.

  16. I've been riding for about a year now. Is the Tuesday session open to non L platers?

  17. Yes it is, there are always people who aren't on their L Plates. I'm not, but I find it is at a nice pace. Come down tonight :)
